The Cartoni P-50/P5K01 Pedestal System with P50 Pedestal, C40 Fluid Head, and 2 Pan Arms consists of the P-50 Pedestal, the C40 fluid head, and 2 pan arms. With a load limit of 88 lb (40 kg), this system is targeted for Studio/OB work where mobility is necessary without any compromise in camera movements.

The C40S is a heavy duty fluid action head specifically designed to support film and studio cameras weighing up to 40 kg (88 lb). The counterbalance and fluid drag systems are controlled by 8-position rotary selectors, facilitating accurate and repeatable setups. Standard features include the quick release camera plate with safety lock, two adaptable telescopic pan bars and an illuminated spirit level. The head comes equipped with a flat Mitchell base, and optional accessories include a 150 mm bowl base and an eyepiece extension holder.

The P50 is a portable and compact pedestal for both studio and OB applications. Extremely stable yet relatively lightweight, its ideal performance is reached with camera/lens combination of around 100 lb (45 kg). The air-filled, one shot column is fast and safe to operate: the air can be set in manually or by compressor, and a safety air pressure valve prevents danger of over pumping. The innovative column design provides outstanding stability end jerk-free control with exceptional smoothness and precise movements. Accurate camera balance is achieved at full extension by simply activating the bleed valve, releasing excess air pressure. The column supports a maximum payload of 121 lb (55 kg) at 180 psi (12.4 bar) and the safety valve is adjusted for a maximum 250 psi (17.2 bar). The fold-able dolly has a six-position track lock and a foot operated brake on each of the 125 mm twin wheels.

Together the P50 and the C40 form a system which has almost all of the capability of a pure studio setup, but with the option to work on location and still support large cameras with heavy lenses with ease and grace.
